The ROV Industry has at last come of age. This maturity is shown in a number of ways, not least of which is the increasing demand for a highly skilled, motivated and professional work force.
A Pilot/Tcchnician is required to demonstrate a high degree of technical skill and is expected to evidence an extraordinary level of operational expertise. Outwidi his need to have an expert technical discipline, he is also required to be a cameraman, photographer, commentator, seaman, weatherman, navigator, crane driver and report writer. Most of all he has to be inventive, flexible and a ‘team player’.
